HELP SAVE AFGHANISTAN AND AFGHAN CULTURE. Please take a look at this book. And then please consider sending this link to others who might find the information of interest. My hope is people like you will donate $20 (plus $4.95 domestic shipping) and I will send you an original copy. 50% will go to Afghan relief agencies. The other half covers the cost of the book. The fifty black and white photographs contained herein were taken in Afghanistan in the early 1970's and are a vital record of the time before the Russian invasion and nearly 40 ensuing years of upheaval, displacement and near destruction of the Afghan culture. Originally published to accompany the exhibition of the same name at the San Francisco Public Library 2008-2009, as the photographer/author I am now using the book as a fund raising tool for Afghan relief agencies. 50% of the $20.00 sale price goes directly to agencies working to provide food, clothing, educational opportunities, de-mineing work, job training, and a myriad of other types of assistance for needy Afghans of all ages. I am pleased to offer access to the book here, but make the plea that viewers visit my website and purchase a personalized, new perfect-bound paperback copy. I pledge to donate 50% of the book cost to Afghan relief. I am working with the Khaled Hosseini Foundation, Afghan Friends Network and other groups. I am also happy to receive suggestions from readers for additional agencies working in Afghanistan. See the website www.imagesofafghanistan.com
